So, I just wanted to share that SO and I have been talking about weddings A LOT lately. We both have no problem bringing up our future wedding/honeymoon and what we would or wouldn’t want. Everyone we bump into asks about us getting married. Part of it is probably that we just moved in together and are about to hit our one year anniversary, so it’s almost like everyone, include us, are discussing the next step. The other day when we were discussing the future I asked him for a timeline (which is pretty much the only detail we’ve never discussed, he has always just said “soon”). Well he said he wants to get engaged in the next year to year and a half MAX. Wooo!! I will be honest, I was kind of hoping he was thinking it was more like 6 months to a year away but a year to year and a half sounds like a good plan to me. 🙂
Did anyone else make progress this weekend?

This weekend we decided to order the ring this week. Since we aren’t getting engaged until November or December, I am not sure why he wants to do it so early but it is making me wild!
Congrats on the timeline! When we first discussed ours it was a year and 4 months away, and now it is creeping up on me. Time flies!

Ooooh congrats on the timeline!
I’ve sort of made progress: me and SO want to live together later on, and I said I’d like to take the next step before we do. He said “what, the ring stage?” and I said yes, grinning. He then recalled a conversation we had months back about where we stood with pace (i.e. marriage on the cards). He wants to buy within the next year, so I’m thinking a year to a year and a half? I’m gently bringing up the conversation up each time he mentions marriage 🙂

Yay! Having a timeline definitely makes things better. My boyfriend just went ring shopping on his own last week and it sounds like he got a long of things figured out! I’m surprised he told me anything about it but he said he did it to help me stay calm since he knows how excited/agitated I’ve been about the whole thing! I definitely probably asked him too many questions about it after he told me this but now I’m keeping quiet. He wants me to get re-sized before he makes the plunge and buys it (we picked out the ring 2.5 years ago and I’m more bloated since stopping Yaz). Anyways. For me this is huge news and I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will happen in the next few months! Good luck to you ladies! 🙂
